application of simultaneous multi-slice imaging to a segmented EPI allows the acquisition of multiple
contrasts while retaining sufficient temporal resolution and spatial coverage.
Contrast-enhanced perfusion measurements were performed on a pig’s hip/leg
resulting in mainly muscle-perfusion images with separated S0 and
T2* maps. The separation of the different signal contributions potentially allows for a quantitative analysis in contrast-enhanced dynamic imaging.
